The Timesavers hammerhead technology is designed to efficiently remove slag and was until recently only available on the 10 series entry-level model, 22 series and large 42 rotary brush machine. Now that Timesavers has introduced the new 32 series HWRB, it has become the perfect solution for slag removal, deburring, edge rounding and laser oxide removal.
Quick removal of slag/dross thanks to Timesavers hammerhead solution
A common problem that occurs during plasma cutting is the formation of large burrs. Also known as slag or dross, the term “dross” is often used interchangeably with the words “slag,” and “spatter.” Whichever you choose to call it, excessive buildup of hardened metal on your cut can lead to costly downtime needed for post-cut cleanup. Now, this slag/dross can be removed quickly and easily thanks to the Timesavers hammerhead solution. The pins hammer the slag of the parts by a counterclockwise movement of up to 22 m p/secs/min to guarantee optimal dross removal. This application is followed by deburring and rounding off the edges up to a radius of 2 mm in one pass. One may think that the 1100 mm working width is solely for large products. However, the machine can be equipped with a strong magnetic track that can hold small steel parts of 50 x 50 mm in place. Once in a while, the worn tooling needs to be replaced. This takes more or less 10 minutes and then it is ready to go. In order to double the lifespan of the pins, Timesavers developed a module system that enables the operator to easily turn or change a module with worn hammer pins.
A partner specialised in dust extractors
In 2021, Timesavers partnered up with Absaugwerk GmbH; a German company, specialising in dust extractors. A powerful dust extraction contributes to a dust-free working environment, necessary for the employee’s health, and of course, it increases the service life of machinery. Now that one year has passed, the extraction unit is finally available in Timesavers style! By adding Timesavers Hammerhead technology and the dust extractor to your current machine version will enhance the quality of your products.
